in the middle line, Lateral to this band the fibres nm obliquely, both upwards and downward*, and interlace with one another. The subxnucous coat is thick, and composed of more elastic areolar tissue than :n Man, The mucous membrane is loosely attached to it. The serous coat exhibits nothing peculiar.
Little attention has been paid to the bladder in the other large Apes,    Deniker (44* has given measurements
of the bladder in the foetal Gorilla; and Kuxlev   88 .

Fick (24?, Sandifort ;28(K and Barkow have n.ade a few remarks on the bladder of the Orang, Xcne cf these observers have drawn attention to essential dicer-
ences between the bladder in their animals and in the Chimpanzee described above.
Ovaries.—In the Chimpanzee the ovaries vary in shape, not only in different animals, but on both sides in each. They lie vertically behind the broad ligaments, and at a higher level than the uterus (fig. 48). They have the same ligamentous connections as in Man, and the ovarian fimbrise are well marked. On section one sees the cubical germinal epithelium covering the ovary. In the interior one observes many primordial ova and Graafian follicles in different stages of formation. The histology has been described by Giacomini, Duval ^52), and Sperino (401). In the foetal Gorilla, according to Deniker (44), the ovarian ligaments are attached to the uterus lower down than in Man; and both ovaries are long and narrow. The same author observed them to be flattened in the foetal Gibbon.
